Car Lands in Stream; Brooksville Man Dies

BROOKSVILLE — A Brooksville man died Friday after his car went off the road and rolled landing upside down into a stream off Varnumville Road, said Maine State Police Sgt. Jeffrey Ingemi.

Michael Bernal, 46, was pulled from the vehicle and given CPR, Ingemi said. Peninsula Ambulance took Bernal to Blue Hill Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The Brooksville Fire Department assisted at the accident, which occurred at 5:30 p.m.

Ingemi said driver inattention appears to be a factor. Alcohol is not a factor.

Authorities will perform a vehicle autopsy to determine if the car, a 1994 Toyota Corolla, had any issues, which would have contributed to the accident
